NOS1 codes for a protein that makes nitric oxide from L-arginine. Nitric oxide acts as a biologic mediator in several processes, including neurotransmission, and antimicrobial and antitumoral activities (Alderton et al. 2001).
Two changes in this gene were identified in a UDN participant. Research is underway to see if these changes are causing symptoms in this patient.
